Balham Literary Festival: A Way of Being in the World
Fri, 10 Jun 2016, 17:30 – Sun, 12 Jun 2016, 19:00 BST
We are all connected to our landscapes, whether urban, rural or those inside our heads, but how do we bring them to life? There are people – writers, photographers, musicians, artists across all genres - who describe and animate our surroundings with insight and verve, and we are delighted to welcome some of the greatest of these to our festival in June 2016.
Whether it's Robert Macfarlane on the English Eerie, Helen Macdonald on H is for Hawk around the world, Inua Ellams leading you on a Midnight Run through South London, Ruth Potts introducing you to bread, print and roses, China Miéville skewering the picturesque, Lauren Elkin on flâneurs or Tendai Huchu on why we include landscape in contemporary fiction, we urge you to join us for a dazzling approach to the worlds around and within us.
